Agree with all of that. I'm definitely not giving up on all these guys, but I also think most of them will become second liners at best and I think it's easy to overrate their future impact since they were heroes at the WJC's for unusually deep Sweden teams.
Some will surprise, some will never amount to much. That's hockey and the unpredictability is part of what's fun with this game. The positive thing is that there are so many potential surprises that it feels like we're quite likely to see a new Zetterberg or an Alfredsson come out of (basically) nowhere. Even if scouting is better these days, it's far from perfect.

By the way, I would love to see Tedenby become a star player in the league. Such a likable player.
